Raw foods – Day 6 & 7

Hello! Didn’t manage to blog yesterday so today’s post is going to combine Day 6 & 7. Before I recap my meals, just wanted to share how the detox is working for me

I FEEL SO ENERGETIC AND AWAKE!

For the last 3 days, I’ve been sleeping very little –  partly because I’m busy, but partly because my mind is so active. Even though I only get 4 – 5 hours of sleep, I don’t feel lethargic or grouchy in the morning. I normally snooze a gazillion times before finally crawling out of bed…but today sprung up almost instantly, like it was the most natural thing in the world to do.

Another interesting fact , I’ve been having less cravings, snacking less and eating less.  I read somewhere before cravings are our bodies’ way of telling us what it really wants (what nutrients it lack). For example, a craving for chocolate could mean that our body lacks Magnesium. When you’re on a raw foods detox, your diet becomes more nutrient dense, and you don’t need to eat so much to satisfy your body… thus you eat less and crave less!

Will blog abit more about the benefits of raw foods in separate post, for now , here’s a recap:
